Senate approves plan to end FAA furloughs

FAA Furloughs Begin and the Local Effects

The U.S. Senate passed a measure Thursday aimed at ending the air traffic controller furloughs that caused widespread delays this week.

The bipartisan agreement would give transportation department budget planners new flexibility for dealing with forced spending cuts. It would also let authorities protect about 150 control towers slated for closure.

The furloughs and closures are a result of the sequester that took affect in March.

The house is expected to take up the bill Friday.

    Treasure Map Deadhand, by Gem – Fonts, is less distressed than many of our other “treasure map” style
    pirate fonts, lacking all the jagged strokes.
    One great example is the Wings package that is good for up to twenty-six persons
    and can reach two days in the sea. We are a part
    and whole of that Second ray Kingdom that is intended to be the
    chalice for the universal mind of God made manifest on Earth.
